You get what you pay for....
We're complete camping 'newbies' and even we can put this up (we practiced in our garden - worth the effort and enjoyed a 'camping night' with home comforts on the doorstep). The design wasn't exactly what we wanted but we made this choice in case we get courageous enough to camp abroad which is our goal. With this design, there's less worry around pitch size.
A good buyRead moreLess

"Fab tent, if pricey. DH bought this and I thought…"
Fab tent, if pricey. DH bought this and I thought he was mad to take up camping with a 3yr old an 1 yr old in October, but I am happy to say we all really enjoyed it. It is a bit of a challenge to put up with 2 little people 'helping', but you only really need 2 adults for the first 40 mins or so until the main tent is up, and then one of you can the kids away to do something more interesting whilst the other completes the pegging out etc. We've pitched this 3 times now and it does get easier. I think it could be pretty tricky to put up with just 2 adults if it was windy, although once it is up it feels very sturdy. It's a great size and the kids love having their own bedrooms ( so do we!). Love the zip in groundsheet ( no drafts/puddles). Loads of windows so unlike many tents, it isn't claustrophobic inside during the day. Agree with other reviewer that side extension is useful. Not a tent for quick overnight stops, but great for family holidays. It is big and heavy ( 2 bags each weighing more than 30 Kg so you will need an estate car with a large boot!) but it feels as though this tent will stand the test of time. Really pleased with it.Read moreLess

"If you are looking for luxury then look no further!…"
If you are looking for luxury then look no further! This polycotton tunnel tent will sleep eight in three bedrooms that are plenty big enough, it has a zip in (and out) heavy duty PVC groundsheet in the main living area - which can seat six easily, the kitchen area also fits our fold out table and four chairs for eating, cotton curtains and lots of doors/windows making it a light tent too. The fabric means that it stays cool in the heat of the summer but stays warmer for early season camping too.
The tunnel design means that you don't have to worry about it fitting onto pitches and it is straightforward to put up, although it's weight means that you do need two of you!
The only down side to this design is that the doors slope so that if it is raining it's difficult to get out of the tent without getting wet - solve this by getting the canopy for the front or the side.
I wouldn't hestitate to recommend the Lake series to anybody - they are expensive but will last you 20 years and get you admiring glances on campsites across Europe!Read moreLess
